    I've been very pleased with the iPad mini. It's extremely portable, and yet very usable.

    I recently picked up a iPad 4 and though it's really nice with the retina, I think I might exchange it for a mini; but still undecided.

    ----------

    curious, have you run into any sluggish performance/lag?

    None, whatsoever. I don't do any gaming, however, so if you plan to, I can't speak for what kind of performance you would get.

    It really depends on how u going to use it. A mini would suit u best if you wanna use it on the go.

    Any of them will meet those requirements. You'd have to provide more criteria to narrow it down.

    Grab a 16GB iPad Mini, sounds like it would be perfect for you!

    I vastly prefer the 9.7" screen size-not to mention the better hardware it has.

    Only advantage to the mini would be if it's pocketable, which I assume it's not (asking a question about that right now lol)

    Do you play lot of games? And what about storage? iPad Mini is very portable and might be suitable for you but its older chip and 512MB isn't as good as the iPad 4. Also this year's iPad Mini might not get retina display according to the rumours -

    That would make some kind of sense. It can't go to 4x the resolution very easily with decent battery life since it needs 4x the GPU. But they can still bump it to the dual core Swift + 3 GPU design used in the iPhone.
